Upon entering the salon you’re greeted with light and openness provided by the large “toughened” pilothouse windows. You’ll also notice the amazing craftsmanship of this yacht as evidenced by the teak and holly floors, teak walls and trim, and beautiful vented cabinetry throughout.
To port is a long U-shaped settee with folding teak dining table with storage inside. To starboard is the lower helm with full suite of electronics and just aft is the nav station with chart storage and a swivel seat.
Forward and down two steps brings you into the fully remodeled galley which is well designed for cooking on the hook or underway. The galley features corian countertops, oversized sink, three burner Princess stove, 1 freezer and 2 refrigerators, and ample storage. To starboard is a custom 2-person dinette with sliding counter and ice maker and trash compactor. Forward of the galley to starboard is the clothes washer/dryer.
Moving forward to port is the head that functions as either guest head or day head. All the way forward is the V-berth with excellent ventilation, hanging locker and storage throughout.
Back in the main salon moving aft and down leads you to the extremely spacious master stateroom with full centerline queen bed. The master also features two hanging lockers, numerous drawers, and built-in seating. Directly forward of the berth is a mirrored vanity with a swing out stool and extra overhead lighting. To port is the master bathroom featuring a sit down tub/shower, vacuflush head, and dual medicine cabinets.
Another amazing feature of this yacht is the well-executed cockpit and aft deck. The cockpit features comfortable and protected seating for up to 8 around a folding table. The helm settee can seat 2 and offers access from both port and starboard. The helm provides excellent visibility and is within close reach of the primary electric winch and the aft jib winches.
The aft deck is accessed from either port or starboard and features integrated stern seating for up to 4 as well as a walk-through transom. The entire cockpit and aft deck is covered by a custom dodger and bimini and safety is provided by oversized stainless steel railing all around. Access to the foredeck is provided by wide side decks with hand holds throughout.
The entire layout of the cockpit and aft deck is exceptionally functional for both offshore sailing and harbor cruising!
Professionally renovated in 2013 with corian countertops and oversized sink, stove cover, center-pull out breakfast dinette table for two, built-in spice rack, and overhead plexiglas insert for optimum light.
